Situated in Manteca, Woodbridge by Del Webb provides resort-style living for residents aged 55 and older. This community is conveniently located between the Bay Area and Sacramento, offering its residents exceptional private amenities that enhance wellness in a quaint, small-town atmosphere.

History of Del Webb and Woodbridge

Woodbridge at Manteca represents the largest residential development in the history of Manteca, significantly impacting the city's demographics. This expansive community, located northwest of Union Road and Lathrop Road in North Manteca, features 1,406 homes. This surpasses the previous largest community, Chadwick Square, by nearly 800 homes. Interestingly, the inception of this community ties back to an idea conceived 58 years ago by Delbert Eugene Webb, a native of Fresno born in 1899.

Who is Del Webb?

Del Webb's journey began in Fresno, where he was born to parents of California pioneer descent. Early on, Webb developed skills in carpentry, which he utilized throughout the 1920s while also playing semi-professional baseball. His ventures led him to own a part of the New York Yankees during a period of significant success for the team. By 1928, Webb established his construction firm in Phoenix, later gaining notoriety for major projects like Madison Square Garden and several military housing developments during World War II.

In 1946, Webb ventured into the gaming industry, constructing the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, which marked the beginning of large-scale gambling in Nevada. This move eventually positioned him as a major gaming operator in the state. However, his significant contribution to community development came with the opening of his flagship Sun City community in Phoenix on January 1, 1960. This community, aimed at active adults over 55, hosted 100,000 visitors its opening weekend and sold 1,300 homes by year's end, establishing a new model for age-qualified living.

The Sun City model featured modest homes and simple recreational activities like golf and crafts, tailored to the preferences of its residents. The success of Sun City led to the expansion of this model to Florida and Southern California, though these were later sold due to a strategic shift towards more centrally located communities.

Del Webb Corporation went public in 1961 and continued to grow, eventually focusing exclusively on developing master-planned communities after divesting its gaming interests in 1987. The company utilized extensive market research to continuously adapt its offerings to meet the evolving preferences of its demographic, which included larger homes and more elaborate recreational facilities.

By the 1980s, Sun Cities were incorporating luxurious recreation centers with modern amenities. Del Webb expanded nationally in the late 20th century, introducing communities in new states and refining its offerings based on extensive customer feedback.

In July 2001, a significant merger occurred when Del Webb Corp. joined forces with Pulte Homes, Inc., creating the nation's largest home-building company. This merger expanded the reach of Del Webb communities, now home to over 200,000 residents across the United States, continuing to evolve and cater to the lifestyle preferences of active adults. Today, Woodbridge at Manteca stands as a testament to this legacy, promising a vibrant community for its residents.
